Liverpool legend Gerrard is one of the greatest midfielders of his generation and had a knack for scoring big goals.
But a video from Rom7ooo shows Gerrard was able to slow it down and control a game's tempo with ease.
Forget everything else, very few had the pure passing ability that Stevie had... pic.twitter.com/Ssi9nJcmpZ- Football Threads (@FootyThreads_) March 23, 2021
The video shows Gerrard launching cross-field balls for strikers to latch onto for the easiest of chances as well as cute flicks to nearby teammates.
It has been argued the current Rangers manager was rarely blessed with strikers as talented as him in his 17-year stint at Anfield.
Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez were the two standouts and have been named as some of Gerrard's best teammates.
That's seen Liverpool fans claim he should be viewed on the level as former national teammate and longtime rival Paul Scholes.
Former Manchester United man Scholes is unmatched when it comes to technical ability - but he had better forwards in a better team ahead of him.
How can anyone watch this and still convince themselves that Gerrard wasnt better than Lampard and Scholes? He was better than both. Easily top 3 PL midfielders of all time if not THE BEST.#StevenGerrard #LFC https://t.co/8eanKhqzuO- . (@velvet_thunder1) March 24, 2021

Imagine the amount of assists he would of had if he wasnt playing with the likes of vorinin, cisse, baros and Ngog for a large portion of his career- sam (@walkon89) March 23, 2021

His biggest strength....he had no weaknesses. Was made in a lab.- John Prescott* (@jp_lfc) March 23, 2021
The Gerrard and Scholes debate is one that's raged for years and other legends have been asked for their opinion.
He begun: "The next one would have been, right behind, very close, Stevie G. But I have to go with Paul Scholes.
"He was just ahead in his head. He made Manchester United tick. Every time we were playing them we needed to find a way to stop him.
"It's true. I think Stevie G comes really close to him. But Paul Scholes would have to win."
